When we are children, we are very enthusiastic about watching our favorite movies, without analyzing them too much. We focus our minds on the movie plot, on characters, colors, and everything that happened. But, when we watch them again as adults, it is possible to watch some hidden details, some jokes, and questions that now make us laugh. For example, have you ever wondered what is wrong with Cinderella’s foot?

This and a lot more facts are going to be exposed in this article, details that we did not notice before.
